Galaxy and Comet IPA, releasing for only the second time, continues The Hop Concept’s exploration into partnering select hops together to make dankalicious craft beer.
Bright notes of Tropical fruit and resinous pine, Galaxy and Comet finishes with a light earthiness and just a kiss of sweetness. Galaxy and Comet will be released in both 22oz bottles and draft.
“We really liked the way Galaxy and Comet turned out last year, but we felt we could do better this year” Steve Burchill, Lead Brewer for The Hop Concept said. “Tweaking the recipe this year gave us a chance to really let these two hops shine much more in this years batch.”
Galaxy and Comet IPA will be available throughout The Hop Concept/ Lost Abbey/ Port Brewing Distribution network beginning March 14.
